William Stanley Braithwaite, ed. (1878–1962).  Anthology of Massachusetts Poets.  1922.
 
Love Autumnal
 
Oliver Jenkins
 
 
MY love will come in autumn-time
When leaves go spinning to the ground
And wistful stars in heaven chime
With the leaves’ sound.
 
Then, we shall walk through dusty lanes        5
And pause beneath low-hanging boughs,
And there, while soft-hued beauty reigns
We’ll make our vows.
 
Let others seek in spring for sighs
When love flames forth from every seed;        10
But love that blooms when nature dies
Is love indeed!
